Swim Team is a collective quartet featuring four Boston-area natives: brothers Casey Berman on saxophone and Elliot Berman on bass, with Mike Sink on piano and Tim Merle on drums. With almost six years' playing together, Swim Team has developed an organic and unique aesthetic, and a rare chemistry for a group of such a young age. Above all, Swim Team fuses modern day elements of the New York jazz scene and studio techniques and sensibilities to create music that has structure and punch—and an in-the-moment spark.
Lampião formed in 2013 with three talented musicians from separate nationalities – Brazil, South Korea, and France —and different musical backgrounds, joined together to play high quality Brazilian music with superb arranging and performance. The individual talent of this trio mixed with its cultural influences has made Lampião a surprising and exciting listening experience.
Lampião has performed throughout the Boston area and most recently performed live at BIRN Alive, an online radio show broadcast by The BIRN (Berklee’s online internet radio).
Lampião has Hayoung Lyou on piano, Daniel Assis on bass, Raphael Pannier on drums, and Josh Shpak on trumpet.
